Creative Nonfiction Editor: Bailey Vandiver

Bailey Vandiver



Bailey Vandiver is a second-year student in Creative Nonfiction at Eastern Kentucky University’s Bluegrass Writers Studio. A Kentucky native, she now lives in Lexington with her two cats, Leo McGarry and George O’Malley. She owns 16 typewriters and too many books that she hasn’t read. She writes mostly about her family and civil rights pioneer (and fellow Kentuckian) Alice Dunnigan.

Fiction Editor: William McQueen

Bill McQueen



William McQueen (you can call him Bill) is a native of rural Indiana who now calls Northern Kentucky home. A second-year student of Bluegrass Writer Studio, he spends his free time reading, writing, enjoying a variety of outdoor activities, and—to the mild amusement of his wife and children—steadfastly cheering for his beloved Cincinnati Reds and Bengals. He probably should have said beloved before wife and children, instead.
